Creatine is a substance that is made by the body, is present in every human cell and involved in all processes that require a lot of energy. While creatine’s positive effect on physical performance has been known for a long time, recent studies have also reported on creatine’s positive impact on mental performance. Like muscle cells, brain and nerve cells use ATP (adenosine triphosphate) as a rapidly accessible energy source. During times of high energy needs, either physical demand or mental stress, creatine is directly involved in making ATP accessible. It functions like a rechargeable battery: Creatine recharges used ATP (low-energy ADP, adenosine diphosphate) converting it back into high-energy ATP. Therefore, if creatine levels are increased, there is also more available energy.
It has been scientifically proven, that taking creatine has a positive effect on the brain’s ability and memory performance. An Australian study showed that subjects who had taken creatine did better on intelligence and short-term memory tests. Research done in a Japanese study* showed that subjects were better able to solve arithmetic problems over a longer period of time after taking creatine. This is attributed to the fact that creatine improves the supply of oxygen to the brain.

With normal activity, 2 to 4 g of creatine are used per day. Depending how physically and mentally active an individual is, this requirement can increase to 5 g per day. The body produces half of the creatine needed daily, and the rest needs to be ingested through food. Creatine is found primarily in fish and meat. However, it is very sensitive to heat, and is mostly lost during cooking and baking. Therefore, depending on the individual’s lifestyle and diet, a recommendation for creatine could make sense!
Although to the naked eye, a glass of water may look 100 % pure, it can contain harmful bacteria and germs. This is true for creatine, as well. Even though creatine can look like pure white powder, it can be of inferior quality, containing toxicologically harmful impurities. Therefore, the manufacturing conditions and the selection and handling of raw materials are crucial factors for determining the quality of creatine monohydrate. Inferior raw materials and manufacturing processes that are not continuously monitored or adapted to the product result in impurities such as creatinine, dicyandiamide, dihydrotriazine and could also lead to “cross contamination.” Creapure® is the premium brand for creatine worldwide. Careful selection of raw materials, manufacturing under GMP conditions, and precise analysis guarantee a product of the highest purity.
As a dietary supplement during the product loading stages, take 5g of material before exercise and 5g of material after exercise along with a carbohydrate source for the first five days of use.
